The Michigan false arrest lawyers at our firm represent clients who have been detained or arrested without legitimate reason or justification. Often, false arrest cases involve the detention of a person in some business or other retail environment by a business employee, security guard, or someone who is pretending to be a police officer.
In some situations, a policing agency can also be held accountable for a false arrest. However, police agencies often have immunity from lawsuits which makes it difficult to hold them liable in civil court. False arrests by law enforcement include lack of probable cause, no warrant, detention of the wrong person and unnecessary search and seizure.
False arrests can result in serious consequences for the victim. Many victims are wrongly embarrassed and humiliated in front of their families, neighbors, and the general public. Victims often suffer psychological injuries, lost wages, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many even have their employment affected by a false arrest. Under Michigan law, a victim may be entitled to money damages for being falsely arrested.
It is important that a Michigan false arrest victim contact our office immediately to investigate a case. Many times, the store, security guards, and others will deny that a false arrest ever happened. When contacted, our office can immediately locate witnesses, obtain store surveillance video, and take other measures to prove your case.
If you or a member of your family is a Michigan false arrest victim, you should contact our firm immediately.
